A release from the project **GEMS** yardsale tapes.
-I'll leave it up to the listener to find all the patches, source changes and what not. I dont keep that good of notes.
-The good stuff is MR>cass and MR>cass>cass from the yardsale benefactor.
-The multi generation sources that fill in the parts the yardsale tapes didnt have were quickly and graciously transferred by the venerable Matt Smith for this release.
-No patch in birdsong, small reel flip.
-The encore is very rough and it was the only song with any sonic adjustments. You are forewarned.
- LLer USBlues also had a hand in some patch material. And both were instrumental in the work and qc on this. Thanks Guys!!
I kid you not when i say this was a a herculean project, so much that I avoided it for weeks at a time..had the tapes for a good while. So its finally done and there are still some serious inconsistencies, but its way better thans whats out there and i have a lot to do. I corrected almost every tune pitch wise. It's pretty good now but was on some songs it was 1% off and some closer to 3%, with no ryhme or reason to it aLL. Took a lot of listening. It takes about 9 hours in high resolutiuon to correct one 45 minute tape side. Lots of trial and error, so dont expect a miracle but a generally pleasant listening experience.
